I need a vacation anyway. Never been to see Aunties place yet, so I'm just going to give it a shot and see what I can find.

In my development alone, I counted 68 out of 705 houses for sale - that was in April when I was doing my monthly crime watch night. That is about 10%. And they said that there were about 800 for sale in our zip code alone. Bad times for sellers, good times for buyers.

techgranny, how big is the town/county where you live?

That could be a bit of a problem for me too. Being able to get a decent price for my house.

As I said, for 200 grand you can find a nice home. But then I do not know the price levels in Indiana. I know that most people that came from the north/east did very well.

whs, I think Escambia is a little too big nowadays:) This might shed more light,

techgranny, it looks like there is a good selection in the mid 200's. I would only consider offerings in a subdivision. It is usually a little more expensive, but a lot quieter and safer. With the crime rate in the US being 30 times as high as in Germany, that is always an argument for me.

Wow whs. Is the crime rate really that bad? I thought they had the 3 strike rule.

The 3 strike rule is in California and maybe in some other state(s) that I don't know. But by us in Florida, someone gets killed every day as to the local news. Very often by the police. In my German home area I have not heard about someone getting killed in 15 years (but maybe I missed a couple).

Either your aim is getting bad. Or you need a better scope :)

I DO NOT aim at people. Just at garden dwarfs. I hate those things.
